UK : businesses collaboration for better working conditions for farmers

The UK Department for International Development launched on 29 January the Trade and Global Value Chains (TGVC) initiative which will work with some of the UK's biggest high street names to improve working conditions and job opportunities in some of the world's poorest countries. The initiative will be piloted in Bangladesh, South Africa and Kenya.
The project will form partnerships between food and clothing retailers, local charities and governments to help farmers and workers employed by suppliers that operate in global supply chains, with focus on improving conditions, training and wages as well as providing healthcare and education in workers' local communities.
The first project to be supported by the TGVC initiative will be a partnership between the Department for International Development (DFID) and the Waitrose Foundation which aims to increase youth skills and employment in the horticulture value chain in South Africa.
